With 2010 almost history, don't miss the opportunity to make one last tax deduction-
and save history in the process.
Please support the production of our documentary, Before the Curtain Rises, which examines the colorful history of the golden age of motion picture theatres through the story of Texas' movie theater empire, Interstate. It documents how saving many of the classic movie palaces has kept screens and stages entertaining communities, while acting as a catalyst for urban revitalization.
Don't let time erase an institution that is part of our generation's upbringing - but in danger of being lost for our children.
Check out what was recently written about these issues in Houston (and about our film) on Culture Map. You can insure that the moviegoing experience will be available to future generations by helping us complete the funding for this film. With much of the principal photography done and a challenge grant from Houston Endowment in place for post production, we are close to the finish line. But challenge grants are only awarded if the community offers to meet its generosity.
